Ready. Set. Hoe! I’m gonna be so toned at the end of this internship after all this hoeing around in the field(s) Colorado has truly soothed my soul and brought me so much peace where its was needed. Don’t get me wrong It sucks I’m up at 4-4:30am to be to work by 6am, but it honestly doesn’t bother me that much in the grand scheme of things. Short term pain for long term gain- investing in myself, my future and what I love has brought me so much happiness so far, so who knows where I’ll be in 5 months! #coloradoliving#lovecolorado#gayswhofarm#gofarmhemp#hempfarmer#hempfarming#horticulture#gay#weedgeek#growingmedicine

Una de las cosas que mas valoro en la vida son esos espacios cuando puedo estar sola, aunque AMO a mi familia y a mis amigos, disfruto enormemente estos raticos, creo que el mayor sentimiento de libertad es ser dueño de tu  tiempo y de tu espacio y la realización de un mujer se alcanza cuando aprende a disfrutar consigo misma y entiende que el resto son complementos en la vida y que para estar bien con los demás primero debe estar bien consigo y estos momentos de solitud, de pausa y reflexión nos dan un balance y nos recargan para seguir adelante 😁🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 INMENSAMENTE AGRADECIDA CON LA VIDA 😁 #coloradocycling #lovecolorado #purewillpower #girlpower  #gogirl #powerwomen #workforyourdreams #stayfocused #lifebalance #setgoals 👍🏻 @epicacyclingteam

I love...💙💚💛❤️...
💙This dress
The color,material, pattern, and the WAY it makes me feel.
💚The Colorado mountain air
The smell, the temperature, the crispness, and the WAY it makes me feel.
💛Exploring new places
Reconnecting with old friends, making new ones, going with the flow, and the WAY it makes me feel.
❤️ Myself
The way I laugh, connect with people and nature, my spirit, and mostly the WAY I feel being my true authentic self

Cheers to a wonderful few days enjoying, connecting, and being in a ‘not so far place from home’ #Evergreen 🌲

Heading into the clouds @manitouincline with the crew!  Set a PR, and can’t stress how much the myzone HR monitor helped me keep pace throughout the entire hike.  Perfect weather for this hike, Until next time Manitou!  #lovecolorado #beyondfitness #beyondfitnessandperformance #gobeyond #traintoperform #highlandsranchgym #sterlingranch #littleton #fitfam #community #fitcommunity #perseverance #grit #crushingit

Finished off our last night in Colorado with dear friends. Wish we had more time to hang out. Will definitely be back.. Life isn’t about having a thousand friends, it’s about finding the few right ones you need. •

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

After the fifteen minute mini-blizzard, we went back out and took time to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. Tola wanted to hike more, explore more, and I’m sure she would have loved to just run free for a few minutes. But there was something about just stopping and enjoying being at 12k’, the changing clouds above & below us, nothing but snow capped peaks in every direction, the blue, blue sky that just minutes before had been white and grey. In that moment it was the perfect spot.

Dog on a rock on a mountain top . . . under a tree
.
This is from one of our first hikes of the year. Honesty time, I haven’t been hiking regularly for the past couple of months, only a hike here & there. But we’re getting back out there soon! We have a few planned & I’m going to plan a few more later today.
.
And I really need to update my hiking log. Anyone else keep a hiking log? What format do you use? An app or something else digital? Or good ole pen/pencil and paper? A notebook? The main details are thankful stored on my phone (when I remember to start it), but I love a good notebook & pencil. I might have a notebook problem, actually. So if anyone needs a notebook I have extras! [Tangent, sorry!]

You may have seen in our stories yesterday evening that this boy had to make an unexpected visit to the vet yesterday. He has happy tail, that let me tell you is #notsohappy
.
What is happy tail?
He split his tail. We don’t know exactly how or when. It’s usually from wagging the tail so strong & fast and hitting something & the tail splits (and man does it bleed a lot, and it goes everywhere). We noticed it a few days ago & treated it, and it seemed to heal. So much so we had trouble finding the spot to continue treatment. Then yesterday morning I found Bacchus going to town licking/chewing on it. He opened it again & it’s infected now. Happy tail is difficult to heal because of location. Hard to stop a dog from wagging its tail. The vet told us about half of Great Danes that get happy tail end up having to get their tail amputated — because it is so hard to heal the split and completely clear the infection due to location. But she had a positive outlook for Bacchus’s tail.
.
Because of the infection & risk of amputation (& the co$t that goes along with amputation), we’re hitting it hard with antibiotics, internal and topical (so much less expensive than amputation surgery). The vet highly recommended a cone to keep him from licking or chewing it. The vet office didn’t have one large enough, and neither did the two other places I checked yesterday. So plan B. Years ago I saw someone cut the bottom of a plastic bottle off & inserted the tail through the bottleneck — provides protection & lets the tail get air. So dogdad to the rescue! Because fitting Bacchus’s tail through the neck of a bottle and making sure it isn’t cutting off circulation isn’t the easiest task. That was the solution for last night.
.
For the next two weeks we’ll keep on top of his treatments throughout the day, and try to keep his tail protected from both more wagging & his mouth. Here goes nothin’!
